“Ms. Del Balzo has been working with my son for over a year and her work has immensely helped my son. He has been able to implement Ms. Del Balzo’s strategies to help him cope with stress and manage his anxiety. I would highly recommend Ms. Del Balzo!”
-Liz, Bergen County mom

“My weekly meetings with Ms. Del Balzo for the past year have been of great benefit to me. I have learned useful techniques for dealing with grief and emotional challenges that I have both in my personal and professional life. Ms. Del Balzo creates a calm and warm environment that feels inviting and encourages open communication. I have found that Ms. Del Balzo is compassionate, very knowledgeable and honest in our sessions and has a great ability to present a different point-of-view to difficult situations. Throughout our sessions together I feel that I have grown and gained great confidence; I am finding that I can now better deal with day-to-day emotional and behavioral challenges. Thank you for all that you do!”
-Sarah, 29

“When first started seeing Julia, I was going through a lot of turmoil with myself and could not find a constructive way to turn my negativity around. Julia was able to listen and figure out the larger pieces to the puzzle that I needed to hear, but wasn’t able to see. Her help has definitely made an impact in my life.”
Lionel, 28

“My wife and I have been working with Julia for about 6 months. She has a balanced approach to listening and responding to our needs. She carries herself professionally in helping us to find our own path together. Julia is always mindful of each of our feelings and makes a thoughtful effort to consider our historical contexts in developing her learning perspective. She never takes sides, my wife and I have really been able to slow down and spend more time being patient and appreciating each other’s contributions rather than nitpicking at each other’s faults. We have really enjoyed and benefited individually and as a couple, in our time working with Julia.”
George, devoted husband, father and behaviorist

“I have been seeing Julia for almost a year now. Over the course of my time seeing her I have had a great experience. During my initial visits she comforted me and listened to me while offering subtle and supportive suggestions. As time has gone on we have developed an excellent rapport. I am always amazed when she remembers the smallest detail that I may have mentioned from months ago. Julia offers young adults like myself a wonderful opportunity to feel comfortable and truly express issues that are happening in our lives, good or bad. I have always felt welcomed and important when I visit her office. She is a real person with real feelings and can truly understand when someone is in need, she can empathize, and connect to concerns that you are having. I would highly recommend seeing Julia, she is wonderful!”
Mark, 23

“Julia has been the only clinician who has able to make a connection with my daughter who has historically been resistant to therapy. Julia is sensitive and flexible when working with resistance. She’s willing to meet my daughter where she is at and as a parent that is really appreciated.”
